About Me

My photo
Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa
I am a white African. Contradiction in terms? I think not. Sometimes my blog will be serious; sometimes sad; sometimes irreverent; sometimes witty; always my truth simply written.

You undisputed King of Pop,
reclusive genius; childhood
extinguished. Yet you were so good

moonwalking your way to the top.
What did you gain, through all your pain?
Money? Thrills? Why didn’t you stop?

Supernova misunderstood.
You undisputed King of Pop
